Yesterday, I'm sitting on my couch after work trying to figure out what to do about my crappy job when it hits me:
5 years ago, if you told me I'd be working for what basically amounts to adult day care, I would have laughed in your face.
Then I started thinking: What went wrong? I've let myself believe that I would never be able to go back to hospital work after I got hurt and had surgery and 2 painful years of recovery. I've let myself be told that I was only an adequate RN after working for 7 years as an ICU RN. What the hell was I thinking?!
I know I'm a damn good nurse, and that up until the last 4 years, all I wanted was to be a critical care nurse. What happened?!
Well, forget that! I called up a buddy of mine to take advanced life support, and I'm applying for a job in our ER! There's 2 open, and I want one!
Finally! I lit a fire under my own ass!
Remember, it's just a ride!
